This final report is the Measure Applications Partnership’s (MAP’s) third set of annual recommendations to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for strengthening and revising measures in the Core Set of Healthcare Quality Measures for Adults Enrolled in Medicaid (Adult Core Set). Guided by MAP’s Measure Selection Criteria and feedback from two years of state implementation, MAP supported all except one of the measures in the current Adult Core Set for continued use in the program. MAP recommended nine measures for phased addition. MAP identified several strategic issues and also included a list of high-priority measure gaps as a starting point for future discussions. The identified strategic issues and gaps will guide annual revisions to further strengthen the Adult Core Set.
